Sukhoi T-50 video

If and when there are enough of these T-50s out there to actually threaten an F-35, we'll see.

 

The US Army said the same thing about what the RAH-66 Comanche was going to be capable of...

Yeah if and when F-35 finally leaves testing and development phase and actually starts showing up in meaningful numbers and operational capability....because right now a fair comparison for such statements would be F-22. Most certainly not F-35 :wink:

Over 100 F-35ABCs have been delivered and 2 squadrons of F-35B are actually past IOC with the USMC - they are early block software but they would still be expected to go to war at IOC.

My mistake then, last time I checked they were only delivered to a few testing and training squadrons. I guess the B's were delivered to USMC in July as announced...

What's sad is that there are already more than half as many F-35s as there will EVER be F-22s. :aggressive:

You got that right, it's a pity there won't be other F-22s (although in case of a war things would obviously change), considering that the Raptors are effective even for multirole operations.  The F-35 IMHO was necessary only for the Navy and the Marines, but using it as a replacement for other aircraft in the USAF's inventory is not a good idea.  I will miss the A-10, and as far as I can tell I don't think the Russians are going to replace the Su-25 atm.

      Its been a long while since i last posted here.
       
      Well i missed this place...
       
       
      I would like some input from you guys here who are actual pilots in the military that you worked for.
       
       
      Do you consider the FA-50 Fighting Eagle aircraft by Korean Aerospace Industries a LIGHT MULTIROLE FIGHTER?
       
      Or just a LIGHT COMBAT AIRCRAFT?
       
       
      I have been In A discussion with someone that claims the KAI FA-50 since it was based off a Trainer (KAI T-50) that has Fighter capability(tip raiks for any AIM-9/PYTHON) and Ground strike capability(PGMs, AGM65 capability), though limited compared to other fighter slightly bigger than it, Can not be termed as a "Fighter"
       
       
       
      Would that be even correct guys?
       
      Or should it be considered as a Light Fighter, since it has limited capacity to kill other planes?
       
       
       
      Thanks for all your input...
